But not only is each ingredient chosen for its taste, we also weigh the added health benefits and its power-packed portfolio. 


One of our favorites, and most versatile, unique ingredient is JACKFRUIT.


We get lots of questions about this tropical fruit as it rises in popularity, especially among the vegan community. Let’s dive in, shall we?


BACKGROUND

Jackfruit is an exotic, tropical fruit predominantly grown in Uganda, South East Asia, and the Caribbean. As part of the Mulberry family, you would expect this fruit to be teeny-tiny. Surprisingly, this fruit can weigh up to 80 pounds (basically, a 7th grader)! 


TASTE

Best way we can describe it is if mango, pineapple, and banana got together and had a baby. Some people will note that it tastes kind of like a Juicy Fruit stick of gum (which is actually made with jackfruit extract!).


HEALTH BENEFITS

  • High in Fiber
  • Good source of Vitamin C, antioxidants, B-complex vitamins, which help with energy levels and nutrient absorption. 

  • WHEN TO EAT OUR JACKFRUIT CHEWS:

    Aside from always, we suggest pre or post workout, or in the middle of your afternoon. It's best when you’re on the go and need a quick boost of carbohydrates (and flavor!) to fuel your body and keep going.
